    Tornado watch? Yikes.

    Crazy weather. We're snowed in pretty much but it is gorgeous:

    That's one in my front yard. Want more?

    I got what I could without going outside!

    Oh, thank you, thank you. Winter Wonderland. How lucky you are to have that outside your window. The doggie was a very nice, pleasant surprise. How adorable. Thank you again.

    Our storms didn't get here until the middle of the night... at least, that's when I heard them!

    Thank you both for the anniversary wishes! We did go out -- saw a movie (Safe House with Denzel Washington -- lots of car chases and shooting!), then to Red Lobster -- we were originally going to Olive Garden, but we were hungry and Red Lobster was closer!

    I had a Caesar salad, 2 cheddar biscuits, stuffed tilapia (crab meat inside and lobster on top), broccoli and a baked potato... couldn't eat it all, of course. No dessert -- we were too full. DH had salmon, mashed potatoes and shrimp fettucine alfredo, a Caesar salad and 3 cheddar biscuits. We NEVER eat that much, but it was good!

    Wow, CM, that's amazing! It seems from anecdotal FB postings that the entire country is in spring (sunny 70 here in SF). You must have gotten everyone else's snow - it's awfully pretty

    Happy anniversary, Kay! We are 44 this August.

    Christie, I'm just down the road from you[not literally, of course], and we happily have nothing. It did snow today, but brown grass is not covered. Enjoy it I guess. I have loved this winter, although, there is something exciting about a snow day and watching that snow come down the lake on the radar. Geeky, I know!

    Your pictures are very nice.

    I have always thought a fresh snow is absolutely beautiful! And it is especially nice to be inside looking out at it! It is very windy here today with rain on the way. On the plus side it was 70 degrees. No complaints.......

    Wow, we have some great anniversaries being celebrated! You long married people should start a thread with the best advice.

    They heavy snow here was pretty isolated to the very northern burbs. Aren't we lucky? We made the best of it...went outside and made a huge snowman.

    DH came home today with Tiger Stripes ( sweat marks) and it is still only Feb. He says it was in the mid 80's, hot and sunny.

    Thanks for the concern, Cookieee. It was just thunderstorms here, but there were reports of pea-sized hail in some of the surrounding areas. The storms have moved out and tomorrow it's supposed to be sunny and in the high 50's.

    Great photos, Christie Marie! I left that climate 15 years ago, and while I like looking at the pictures, I don't miss it one bit!

    We had the same weather, Mary Ann. And ITA with not missing the climate! My years in Buffalo left me with a total respect for snow and ice, and a deep desire never to see it in person, again! I will say, though, that learning to drive safely in those conditions has made me a better driver all-around. Always a silver lining!

    Have a link to share?
    Hopefully we won't see to much of Isaac, but the waves are picking up. There are a few surfers waiting for bigger stuff

    cookieee...I was just looking at the state radar and it looks like you've had some heavy rain bands today.

    A cloudy day here along the northeast coast with only a few bands of light showers...not the thunderstorms that were predicted...but I expect things will pick up in a few hours as we are expecting windy conditions and rain tomorrow.

    Looks like Issac is going further west, which is good for us, but unfortunately not for those in the bull's eye...stay safe to those where Issac eventually goes.

    Right now Isaac is predicted to slam New Orleans on the very day, 7 years ago, Katrina hit. How weird is that?

    We've had some serious gusts and a ton of rain, but I think the worst is past on this one here in Fort Lauderdale.

    Here, too, although it's trying to clear up. We're actually approaching peak color already, so it's going to be a spectacularly beautiful day.

    Beautiful here too. It rained overnight but got sunny around 9 AM and now it's a somewhat crisp and mostly sunny early fall day.

    About 40 now but we have been having touches of snow at night at about 100 feet elevation. My garden somehow missed the 'killer frost' a couple weeks ago so I plan on covering several of the beds this weekend to keep stuff growing as long as possible. The snow line is well established on the mountain tops and below that is a lovely layer of russets and golds and then the dark greens of connifers.

    Calm today -- 59ºF and gorgeously sunny, making all the trees glow with their color! No more shaking like it did yesterday evening during the earthquake.
